Welcome to KUREP
The goal of the University of Kansas Representation Initiative (KUREP) is to provide information about the views of citizens across the world. We also study the ability of parties and institutions to channel public opinion through the democratic process into public policies. Ultimately, our various projects aim to improve our understanding of democratic representation.

The purpose of this section is to make accessible data sets we used in our research..
